This apartment was perfect for my wife and our two children, ages 11 and 13. Basically right on the beach and within walking distance of all the best that Hermosa and Manhattan have to offer. We walked, ran, skateboarded and biked everywhere. When we drove, it was no issue as we had off-street parking at the apartment. The laundry worked well and we were happy to have a garage to store surfboards, beach stuff, etc. The kids loved the loft and we were very happy in the master. Finally, the rooftop deck is amazing. It has a larger, cozy, lower level that is private and offers plenty of seating and a BBQ. The upper level offers views of the ocean and has a nice setup for drinks or outdoor dining. We will definitely be back!
